Player Notes
Carlos Gomez went 2-for-3 with two doubles and a run scored Tuesday against the Twins.

Advice: Gomez returned to the lineup Tuesday after missing three games with rib cage soreness, and he showed no ill effects in swatting the pair of doubles. It's not the kind of extra-base pop we'd like to see -- he's still without a homer in 2016 -- but it's a step in the right direction. He's been hitting a bit better of late and is batting .229/.256/.313 overall.

Tue, 3 May Rotoworld
Carlos Gomez (ribs) is back in the Astros' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Twins.

Advice: Gomez missed three straight games because of some mild soreness in his right rib cage. The dynamic 30-year-old will start in center field and bat seventh in his return to action Tuesday versus Twins righty Alex Meyer.

Carlos Gomez (ribs) did some baseball activity on Monday.

Advice: It's good news for Gomez, who will miss his third straight game Monday with soreness in his left rib cage. Astros manager A.J. Hinch is optimistic that he'll be able to return during the team's series against the Twins this week.

Carlos Gomez (ribs) will not do any baseball activities on Sunday.

Advice: Gomez is sitting out a second straight game with soreness in his left rib cage, and injury that occurred when he dove for a ball in Friday's game. He will attempt to resume baseball activities on Monday, although it's unclear whether he could return to the lineup that night.

Sun, 1 May Rotoworld
Carlos Gomez is dealing with soreness in his left rib cage and is expected to miss a few games.

Advice: X-rays have already ruled out a fracture, but he's sore enough that he isn't able to give it a full go. Gomez sustained the injury diving for a ball in the outfield during the ninth inning on Friday.

Sat, 30 Apr Rotoworld
Carlos Gomez is not in the Astros starting lineup on Saturday.

Advice: Gomez returned to action on Friday after missing a game after he was drilled in the wrist by a pitch during Wednesday's contest. It's unclear if his absence on Saturday is due to the wrist or simply because he's hitting .213/.241/.275 on the year. Preston Tucker is starting in left field with Colby Rasmus manning center field defensively.

Carlos Gomez (wrist) expects to return to the Astros' starting lineup on Friday.

Advice: Gomez made an early exit from Wednesday's game against the Mariners after taking a pitch off his right wrist, but X-rays turned up negative. This might be a good excuse to get the ultra-active 30-year-old center fielder some physical and mental rest. He's batting just .197/.228/.250 through 21 games this season. Preston Tucker entered to play left field on Wednesday with Colby Rasmus shifting to center.

Wed, 27 Apr Rotoworld
Carlos Gomez exited Wednesday's game against the Mariners after being hit by a pitch on the right wrist.

Advice: Gomez was plunked by Mariners starter Hisashi Iwakuma to lead off the top of the fourth inning. He was subsequently replaced by pinch-runner Preston Tucker. The Astros should issue an update as to Gomez's status on Thursday.
